Hillary Presidential Odds Lengthen

THE expected showdown between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush to become the next President is under threat as other candidates such as Bernie Sannders, Donald Trump and Joe Biden close in as potential candidates, say bookmakers William Hill. Hills have lengthened Hillary's odds from 11/10 to 6/5 as criticism over her emails grows.

'In the earlier stages of the race, punters seemed convinced that Hillary Clinton was certain to win the Democrat nomination, and Jeb Bush became clear favourite for the Republican equivalent as son as he declared himself a runner - but now the 'big two' are being overlooked by gamblers, who are taking a keen interest in other contenders' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'Biden, Kasich, Rubio, Sanders and Trump are all attracting serious support and we are anticipating a record betting turnover into seven figures for US politics'

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE: 13/8 Bush; 3/1 Trump; 5/1 Rubio; 5/1 Walker; 9/1 Kasich; 14/1 Paul; 16/1 Cruz; 20/1 Carson; 20/1 Fiorina. Others on request,

DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE: 3/10 Clinton; 9/2 Sanders; 5/1 Biden; 33/1 O'Malley. Others on request.

TO BE NEXT PRESIDENT: 6/5 Clinton; 4/1 Bush; 5/1 Trump; 10/1 Biden; 10/1 Sanders; 12/1 Rubio; 16/1 Kasich; 16/1 Walker; 50/1 upwards others.
